Unfortunately, 98% of the time it’s “Diego Forlán”, and it’s really is getting old. I’m telling you, if you’re looking to increase traffic on your website, do yourself a favor and find some way to mention his name and watch the hits triple. Let’s say you have a lawn-mowing business. You could advertise it as “the Diego Forlán of landscaping in Boise”. Or “Put Diego Forlán to shame with our Six-pack Maker”, if what you’re selling is one of those ab-roller contraptions to develop abs of steel. I’ve thought about deleting the post before, but when I blog about something it’s because that’s what I wanted to be doing at a specific point in time, and erasing what I wrote would be negating some part of myself, as tiny, stupid or embarrassing as it may be. So the post stays.
Other times, people want to find out about my friends. Someone was searching for Geneva Ayarra a couple of months ago, Esther Ciganda last week, and virtually every other day someone types “Miren Maguregui Boise”. Yes, it’s true, I know her. You should really email me and ask whatever it is you want to know, and if you’re not super weird, I might even get you in touch with her. For now, you should know she is doing great, goes to the gym everyday, loves her job, she’s sporting a great looking purple shirt today, and she’s headed to the Basque Country in two weeks.
But this morning I saw a search for “Instant gratification photos” and well, that’s just plain creepy, ok? When I think about instant gratification it’s more along the lines of giving my credit card the ride of its life. I’m not sure I want to know what type of gratification this person is instantly looking to obtain, but I’m assuming they should be pointing their URL to Craigslist’s casual encounters. If they can stomach the spelling mistakes, that is.
(Umm… It turns out I did want to know what you’d get by searching for “instant gratification photos”, so I went ahead and googled it, and actually, there are tons of them, and they’re not even dirty.)
